Another Halloween has come and gone. It seems like Halloween has been a very long affair this year with a never-ending string of themed recitals, parties, and whatnot. I'm so proud that I finished all five pieces of Allegra's Laura Ingalls costume (and it looked pretty darn good, if I do say so myself). Hero was Pumpkin Spice, Ian was a pirate, and Colin was (a family tradition now for all the children on their 2nd Halloweens) a duck. Friday was an absolutely balmy day with temps in the 60s. The kids were comfortable in their costumes with no need for coats, which made trick or treating a breeze. They made a very good haul and we should have candy well into the new year.
And, as a side note, congratulations President-elect Barack Obama! What beautiful and moving speeches both fine public servants, Obama and McCain, gave last night. Go America!!
